Bob Parsons talks of quitting
« on: June 29, 2005, 10:22:03 PM »
Bob Parsons of GoDaddy.com fame blogs about how tempting it was to quit right before he finally succeeded, confirming Confucious' line: "The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed."

yeah only you left one thing out
The temptation to quit will be identical just before you are about to fail miserably and get locked up for failure to pay your debts."

now play the fun game of whether you are about to succeed or go to jail.

Exactly! I can't believe how much money that guy burned on GoDaddy, but like a lot of entrepreneurs who make millions overnight, they always think they can do it in another business.

I guess you have to respect that resolve.  Or more bluntly, that set of balls!  But honestly, if it were me, I would have happily sat on my ever-expanding ass after becoming fabulously wealthy the first time.  I much prefer serotonin over adrenaline.

Ha! For some folks, making money is the ultimate drug. This may sound stupid, but I've got better things to do than waste my life making money. :huh: The GoDaddy commercials in the SuperBowl were the only ones worth watching, so Bible-Bob must have some class somewhere in his genes.
